gordon taylor, who's from the football world, he was suing tnews of the world. and i tried to keep on top of that. >> bergman: gordon taylor is one of the very few people the police told. even though no story had been written about him, he got angry. he hired a lawyer. he chose this man-- mark lewis, a little-known provincial lawyer who has multiple sclerosis-- to take on a global media titan. >> i'd heard of news corp. before all this. i don't think they had heard of me. i think now they've heard of me. >> bergman: the response from the chief counsel at news of the world was surprising. the top lawyer has someone call you and say, can i come see you? and you're up in manchester? >> i mean, it was the mountain coming to mohammed, rather than mohammed going to the mountain. if he'd have phoned me up saying, "you know what, we don't think you've got a case. however, we're going to give you £10,000, 15,000, to settle it without any admission of liability," my client would probably have had to accept that and the case would all have been over. but they didn't do that. it was obvious that the

of which the decision to pay the settlement in the gordon taylor case was based. the committee also went on, again, to conclude by majority vote that corporately the "the news of the world" and news international had misled the committee repeatedly about the true extent and nature of the investigations that they claim to have carried out in relation to phone hacking. and that they had failed to disclose documents which would have revealed the truth. as a result of these various attempts to mislead the committee, the report that we published in 2010 was not based on a fully-accurate picture. as a result of this, the committee has decided that we will table a motion in the house of commons, asking the house to endorse our conclusions about misleading evidence, and we will also refer our report to the liaison committee which is looking into questions related to the powers and effectiveness of select committees. now, i believe one or two of my colleagues wish to add. >> thank you, john. to put it politely, um, we've been led up the garden path by news international, but more importantly, so wer

in the gordon taylor case, we have been minded to follow precisely the evidence we were given, which does not contradict anything he said to the committee and therefore it is not possible to say he misled parliament. we can be critical of the actions at that time. of the failure to disclose information about phone hacking. the failure to investigate it fully. i would also touch on the role that we have been critical of. there was a statement of ankara last week. there was what senior invest -- executives knew and there was what lawyers and managers and editors knew, which would have been greater. you have someone who did have the opportunity to sit down and interrogate him personally about his employment plan. he is not aware of allegations and i think this key quote that was given that james murdoch used in his defense, they are no longer here. it was intriguing as to why the reference was left in there. i think he had a pivotal role and that is why it is important we focus on that in our report. >> it has been 10 years, one month, and nine days. five days ago, rupert murdoch admitted th
